The coronavirus pandemic has made it difficult for many of our patients to receive their necessary preventative dental care. As we begin to reopen our office, we want to stress the importance of seeing a professional dentist at least once every six months. Here is why you should prioritize scheduling a preventative dental care appointment as soon as possible:
Your Dental Health Is Directly Intertwined With Your Overall Health
Your dental health affects more than just your teeth, gums, and jawbone. Because your mouth acts as an entryway to both your digestive and respiratory systems, it’s important that it remains healthy and free of harmful bacteria. Preventative dental care appointments consist of a thorough teeth-cleaning and examination of your dental health to ensure that excess bacteria are not building up around your soft tissues. Allowing your gums and teeth to collect plaque and tartar buildup puts your more at risk for certain health complications like diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Preventative Care Saves Time and Money
One of the best ways to reduce your risk of needing costly restorative dental procedures is to schedule regular preventative care appointments. These preventative care appointments allow for your dentist to keep a close eye on your dental health and catch any underlying dental concerns before they become major issues. Most dental concerns do not showcase noticeable symptoms until they progress into later stages, causing sudden pain or tooth loss. It’s important that your dental structures are evaluated by a professional to help reduce your risk of unexpected dental expenses and discomfort.
Patient Safety is Our Priority
At Dental Distinction, we understand that offices can no longer proceed with care the same way we did even just a few months ago. Our office has ALWAYS exceeded CDC standards, and we plan on continuing to do so. During the coronavirus pandemic, our team has developed an improved infection control plan to ensure that our office continues to be the safest, cleanest office in the Chester Springs area. We have updated our procedures and protocols to ensure that we can safely see all of our patients and provide preventative dental care once again.
